Dr. I am worried about my penis problem. The problem is, when i think about something sexual or watching sexy film, a clear gel like liquid is coming out of my penis. What is it? How can i get rid of it?
What you are experiencing is a completely normal sexual response of the body, and there is no need to be worried about it.
The fluid that you see is semen, which is normally ejaculated during orgasm (the end result of sexual intercourse).
Semen is the combination of spermatozoa produced from the testicles and the secretions of the prostate and seminal vesicles. During sexual intercourse or while masturbating, rhythmic contractions of the ejaculatory duct propel the secretions as the ejaculate.
In males who are not sexually active, the excess of secretions are occasionally removed from the body either during sexual excitement or while sleeping as nocturnal emissions (Nightfalls).
The best way for sexually inactive men to avoid nightfalls or emissions during sexual excitation is to masturbate once in a while (or regularly). Hence this will avoid any embarrassment during social situations.
If you have any doubts, you can consult a sexologist or your doctor who can clear all your doubts and apprehensions.
